Sneak-er-Peek at the bold graphics, intense colour palette and cartoon-like quality of these exceptionally rare sneakers inspired by Stewie Griffin, Le Bron James's favourite character from the animated TV show Family Guy. The shoe was never put into production and only just 24 pairs were made available to friends and family by invitation only. View them at The Rise of Sneaker Culture exhibition now showing at the Gallery.
It was a full house last Friday with 92 students and 13 teachers taking part in the annual Year Six Art and Philosophy Day. Students from different schools formed teams and took turns talking philosophy in front of artworks dealing with landscape and place. After a look at The Rise of Sneaker Culture, each group answered a mystery philosophical question dealing with the exhibition. A Lively debate ensued as groups tackled big questions, presenting their answers to their peers in the final session. We hope you all enjoyed the experience. A big thank you to our AGWA Voluntary Gallery Guides who facilitated on the day.

Part of the Gallery’s current major Indigenous project Six Seasons, is the ambitious plan to digitise the entire Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art collection. Photographing works in the collection can be quite involved and require the coordinated assistance of multiple curators, registrars and conservation staff. The following time lapse video shows the behind the scenes activity of the recent recording of an artwork by Nancy Nungurray. The new Six Seasons Gallery will open on 29 July with the first display, Outside: Matters of the heart in Indigenous art.
